This part of the armor is now complete.
...Granted, the mannequin there needs a massive does of estrogen to amply fill the figure of this armor, but hopefully the beauty who is to own this piece will be so kind as to grant some photos with it equipped in the end.
Yes... Every last one of those scales was done by hand. Nothing automatic about this piece, even the stitching is done by a hand crank machine.
The color on it is a new technique I developed for this piece and it's held up to the stress test nicely. It has a pearlescent metalflake look to it and even has a chameleon effect which makes it change colors slightly in different lights & angles, but of course you have to see that in person.
Materials: Dead cow tooling hide to put it bluntly
Left to do:
Dragon Claw Gauntlets
Gorget w/ colar
And who knows what else.
